How Does an Ultra-Low NOx Burner Work?
Thanks to continuously improving technology in this area, they can more accurately control the air/fuel mixture to the most optimum level. Better air/fuel mixture control allows for more efficient flame production and reduces the amount of fuel wasted by a remarkable amount. Finally, by reducing the amount of oxygen available in the hottest area of the flame, the efficiency of the burner is boosted. In many cases, combining these burners with other emissions-reducing measures can achieve as much as 75% greenhouse gas removal efficiency.
Why Should I Switch to an Ultra-Low NOx Burner?NOx is the chemical symbol for nitrous oxide which is a toxic greenhouse gas that can react with other elements to cause a lot of harm to the environment in high concentrations. It is a byproduct of burning many of the common fuels we use today. Governments all over the world are pushing for replacement of older, less-efficient boilers in favor of those with newer, more efficient technology. Science is beginning to understand that conventional burners contribute to:
- ✓ Ground-Level Ozone
- ✓ Toxic Chemicals
- ✓ Elevated Algae Levels in Waterways
- ✓ Air & Water Pollution
- ✓ Smog & Acid Rain
- ✓ Respiratory Problems
- ✓ Climate Change
Top 5 Benefits of Ultra-Low NOx Burners
- Reduced emissions – Lower nitrous oxide (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO) output into the environment
- Low maintenance compared to conventional burners, saving you time and money.
- A significant boost in energy efficiency will show ROI sooner.
- Maintain EPA or Government compliance on emission levels. This can help avoid costly fines for non-compliance.
- Typically, retrofitting a new burner is simple and no additional changes in ductwork or other infrastructure are required to transition.
